know, we rely basically on physician groups to tell us how many hours it takes to give various services. but there was a washington post or new york times article, i forgot which -- i think it was a washington post -- that showed that for certain specialties the doctor would have had to work over 24 hours a day to equal the number of hours that they had, were charged with. so we've got to get a better handle. and the people who are being disadvantaged under the current system are primary care. and that's what we have to fix. and you're exactly right. if we're going to get the right mix, the right work force mix, then we have to have the right reimburse bement structure. and a lot of that means let's replace the sgr which was not part of the affordable care act. it's a separate issue that we clearly have to deal with. i'm going to ask a question, if i might, jay, and that is -- [inaudible conversations] [laughter] >> those of you that have to sort of figure out in advising people how to enroll in the exchanges, i don't know if you've had a chance yet to take a look at the type of plans t
and not just right now. and that really has a lot of meaning to us. and we have great sympathy for the fact that this is an enormously complicated process that they're, that they are going through. what we have asked of the fcc commissioners is more traction parent si -- transparency, more engagement. it might be conventional wisdom that if broadcasters want to stop this -- actually, i think it's in our interests to accelerate this to the degree possible while still getting it right. because this has enormous consequence to the nation that there is a dedicated and healthy broadcast band dedicated to broadcasting if we're serious about preserving video on a large scale that is free and that is local. these things are hugely important to people. in the information age, people still care about gathering around their big screens and watching sporting events or getting emergency information or staying up with the news. it comes there broadcasting in a very significant way. so we, we gave up a lott of spectrum -- a lot of spectrum when we went from analog to digital. we're being asked for more. b

bar tenders guild. the liquor laws don't allow us to use alcohol in training. the bar tenders schools in california are a joke. it's a cheap industry where hopeful bar tenders are hoping to take a $300-500 course to use colored liquid. if we are expected to do this for educational purposes, i imagine that we have to do the same thing, to go through the legislators to propose that to the public and propose it to the abc. i believe this nightlife summit was create because of problems in the public, there was problems with noise, problems with over drinking, a lot of our laws are based on that. i'm here to propose that we have more responsible training for our bar tenders and servers. the cocktail boom around the country has turned bartenders into a true professional. now that professional bartender's job is in question. >> i'm sure it's around the whole notion of where you can drink alcohol and the idea of one of those courses or presentations or event would whether or not it would constitute a public, somebody opened to the public or whether it was essentially amounting to commercial

] >> thank you, commissioner. obviously maritime uses are important, both because it takes advantage of this wonderful asset on the water and because it's so important for trust consistency and bcdc approve. i think our proposals are very similar. in both cases i think the teams are proposing to rehabilitate the existing floating dock of the north. we are also proposing during the long-term phase to build and do guest stock along the south. the guest stock along the south would really operate part of the south beach harbor complex there and could be for both permanent docking and for larger craft that are guest docking. the floating dock on the north is more of a light duty facility and would be good for small craft launching for a human craft like kayak launching as well as ongoing taxi service which would serve both this project, of core, the brannan street wharf. in addition, of course, we would have some maritime facilities inside the building to serve the boaters who are coming and going. i had been -- was involved many years in the operation of south beach harbor which i'm happ
million people live in the united states. and each person uses an average of 100 gallons of water every day. man: what it takes to actually make clean water is somewhat a mystery to most customers. woman: so how does water get from the river into your house, or here at school? woman: somebody has to bring that water to us, and somebody has to take it away when we're finished with it. man: the water infrastructure is vital for disease protection, fire protection, basic sanitation, economic development, and for our quality of life. man: you just can't visualize all the assets that are under our feet. we have about two million miles of pipe in this nation. if you're walking around in an urban area, you're probably stepping on a pipe. man: our grandparents paid for, and put in for the first time, these large distribution systems. woman: and in many cases, it's not been touched since. man: we're at a critical turning point. much of that infrastructure is wearing out. narrator: our water infrastructure is made up of complex, underground systems that function continuously. these 10 locations t
and it is only 9 percent contained. >>> maria molina is here to tell us if the weather going to cooperate. see if firefighters will see any relief today. >> unfortunately i don't have any good news. we are talking about conditions that aren't favorable for firefighters to continue to combat these fires across parts of idaho. we have others in california and across colorado. you are looking at low humidity levels and gusty winds gusting over 35 miles per hour. that could help some of these fires continue to spread very rapidly. the topography is also really rough. you are talking the rocky mountains. it is not easy without taking into account the weather conditions and isolated thunderstorms that could produce additional lightening strikes. the wildfire in idaho started by lightening. the possibility of more lightening strikes is in the forecast as we head into today, tomorrow and even in the next several days at the end of the workweek. across the southeast over the next several days we are getting drenched with heavy rain and temperatures it has been cool because of a boundary out here 3-5 in
is the president that the current military government of egypt may use access to the suez canal as a bargaining tool? >> i have not seen that prospect raised. suffice to say we value the working relationship we have with the egyptians, a relationship that goes back decades, the we have been concerned by some of the steps taken by the interim government to not follow through their commitment to transition back to a democratically elected civilian government. we have made those concerns pretty clear not just of them in private conversations, but to all of you in public announcements of the president and other senior administration officials. >> how much support does the president intend to receive from nato allies and regional allies as he moves to perhaps other initiatives? >> related to egypt? what i would say is that obviously these other countries will be making a determination on their own about their own national security interests. because you are talking about allies, it is reasonable to assume those interests will largely overlap. we have been and will be consulting with allies as they c

. this is going on at the same time with the u.s. credibility at stake. your colleagues are calling for the u.s. aid to egypt be pulled. it passes through the suez canal. also so many things hang in the balance for the region because for the u.s. that has been our regional ally for an arab state. does the u.s. have any real leverage here with the money, the 1.6 billion in aid? or if we take it away does it mean that someone else is going to come in, a foreign entity to fill that financial void. >> that is an important point, thomas. we have already given most of that aid, the $1.3 billion, only about 500 million that has yet to be given during this fiscal year. we have delayed the delivery of f-16 planes and withheld the apache helicopter. they are very interested in getting the military equipment from us and ironically, that money goes to u.s. defense contractors. i think this issue is much bigger than withholding aid. this is a relationship that has been developed over decades with mu bar ark who was a dictator as well. you're absolutely correct when you say that this is a pivotal relationshi
and doing things for others i think is very important. one thing i wanted us to brainstorm together in addition to some external places and spaces we can create, i think there is some internal spaces that we can -- that we can build and nourish through things like spoken word, giving victims and the people around them restored sense of voice. obviously, journals, theater, music. there are a limitless set of options. i think one thing that has been very effective for me in working with the victims of trauma has been to have them not only write their own stories -- someone gave me a book yesterday that was a very good book from what i have been able to see called "sold." it was perhaps for young adults. it is about a girl who was trafficked from nepal and it was very powerful. i want to see the young adults themselves writing the stories. it is an amazing way for people of every age to begin that process. or perhaps they can take a story -- what i have my students do is change the endings of stories. it gives them a sense of empowerment, helps them to recognize that they can alter wha

military closely aligned with the u.s. government, but they're not listening, they're not sort of honoring that alliance. >> right. >> what leverage does it give the u.s. to take the step you're advocating this morning? >> well, i think at this point, they're obviously getting the impression that no matter what they do, our aid will continue, so we do need to exercise our influence by saying we're going to follow the law, particularly in light of your recent violent crackdowns, suspend aid until you restore democracy, until you move to an inclusive process for elections, and obviously, a new constitution that allows all people to have a say in it, to respect people's rights. i think that's what we have to do at this point. we've tried to go down a road to get them to do the right thing. they're not doing that. and also, i would say this, david. the best way to marginalize the muslim brotherhood is in the ballot box, not through arrests and killing people. in fact, you're just going to encourage them to martyrdom, rather than just defeating them at the ballot box. they blew it when they wer

california. it's wrapping back towards us. it looks like it's pushing into the pacific, slightly cooler, especially the coast. it's partly sunny skies and partly cloudy. look at it, 70, fairfield, livermore and san francisco, a west whipped picking up. a lot of cloud cover comes off the mother load or central sierra. some of that could move back off of us. the flow continues to pick up an i lot of moisture. some sun i, a lot of clouds building up. maybe some lightning could be kind of that midwest kind of days. 60s, # 0s, 80 and still hot but not as hot as yesterday. >> traffic is moving along pretty -- pretty well, but it's getting crowded around the bay area. traffic looks pretty good getting up to the coliseum, going around hayward is being in good shape. it's backed up to the 880 crossing. if you're driving on the peninsula or on the freeway heading south, let's say if you're using the san mateo bridge, that's okay. this is also to off to a good start. 6:02, let's did pack to the desk. >>> firefighters are battling ten across the california area. some are in remote areas and others

the premises. two of us went a couple of blocks down six avenue new york had lunch by ourselves. we went through the big issues here and we found that, you know even though we don't agree, as alan said, we come from opposite perspectives here. we were able, in a short time to reach general agreement on a few principles that were the biggest and most important ones. you know, the larger point here is that within washington, and look, a lot of people know it. at love people don't. within washington, there's broad agreement what the financial problems of the country are. broad agreement on the solutions, and reement thae nothing can be done. it's the most insane situation you can imagine. it seems to be -- >> host: how do you different? what is your background or thinking? [laughter] >> guest: we may as welcome out here. we didn't do it in the piece you know, it's carefully written so you can't tell which one leans one direction. lets put this way. the way we see is the opposite of the way we are. i'm to the left
's schedule this week. deputyjoined by the white house editor for politico. start us off with this bus to or in -- this bus tour. educationis on higher issues but he will be talking about other issues as well? republicans are coming up now very quickly. this particular spring is going to be focused on colleges. he's going to take care of upstate new york. he is going to be stopping in president biden -- in vice president biden's hometown on friday. host: he has made a few other proposals already, including one on corporate tax reform for stimulus dollars. where has that gagne go where have some of these proposals see, thist: as you tourist taken him across the country. -- this two were is taken him across the country. proposal will take the form of executive actions that the president can take on his own without congressional approval. other proposals that he is running by congress -- we are not expecting any particular action from this congress. this covers the full spectrum of the economic agenda, including healthcare spending, student loans, home costs. and all of the different arra

agreement between israel and egypt says in principle that u.s. aid should be commensurate between israel and -- from washington to israel and from washington to egypt. does the united states really want to be the first country that breaks the spirit of the camp david accords, whether it is breaking the law or not, it would certainly be seen here as breaking the spirit. >> well, ambassador, you mentioned earlier that they actually don't need the aid, but aren't there other political implications here snr i mean, if you cut off the aid, wouldn't that suggest we are supporting the muslim brotherhood? is that what we want? >> that's exactly the bind we got ourselves into because there was great consternation within egypt that we seem to have made our bed with the muslim brotherhood and we've lost that bet. the muslim brotherhood, for whatever may have been the reasons why we supported them, at least when i say supported them, involved politically with them, they afterall had the presidency. now the presidency has changed again. there will be new elections inevitably in the future. the israel
, gas prices go up for us. this is an absolute disaster in the making. >> suez in jeopardy, gas prices. is that a realistic possibility in this situation? >> reporter: well, there's no doubt that egypt is cornerstone of stability in the middle east. all of those things that senator li lindsey graham mentioned, could play out. the increasing lawless nns the northern part of sinai, these rising mill about the attacks are becoming more and more brazen and more and more deadly. that's giving egyptian officials major concern. if it spreads out to other parts of egypt it could threaten the stability of this country and the rest of this region. >>> all right, here at home, conditions out west are perfect for wildfires and that's not perfect at all when you think about what's going on there. 44 burning. none worst than the beaver creek fire. the first fires laid out 10,000 homes are in jeopardy and more than 1,000 firefighters are trying to get things under control as the flames threaten some tourist towns prompting widespread evacuations and bringing business to a halt. they're facing a trife
nominees. look, if you're not going to have 23 debates these guys are making it easier for us to pair that down to a reasonable number in front of people and entities that give a darn about the future of the republican party. >> you are also -- >> but al, i thought that speaking only to your base was not a way to win? >> well, i am just simply outraged this discriminatory and exclusionary policy. where's glen beck? glen beck has to be in the mix here somewhere. look, this is -- this is, i think, probably a lot of do about things that are going to take a different turn. i don't like these whatever you call them, biopics, i don't think it's such a great idea, but the debates, i mean i like reince priebus but the idea that the debates are what killed the republicans last time was nonsense. it wasn't the circus, it was the animals in the circus. hillary and obama debated through may of 2008 and didn't hurt them. my guess is this is going to shake out in a different way and debates are determined in the end not by the rnc chairman but by the frontrunner. if the frontrunner participates the

. this is a very fast burning type of grass here and i want to show you a map right now that shows us different fires going on around california. we have 5,000 firefighters battling blazes in calaveras, lake caster, san bernardino, humbolt. 2,000 acres burning. threatening 400 structures. right now 45% contained. we have about 900 firefighters on scene. a lot of numbers that boils down to this: bay area firefighters had to go to the fires around the state to help out. this is while the red flag warnings are up for much of the bay area. the foothills, the mountains and along the coast. >> a good portion of northern california is at risk for this combination of dry lightning and gusty winds. that with the already dry conditions is going to elevate the fire danger extremely high. >> reporter: although it's rare, we have lightning storms. this is video from lightning storms back in april. this weekend last night, overnight thunderstorms reported in the sierra nevada overnight. with all of this, cal fire is asking residents to avoid doing anything that can make their work harder. nothing that can sp
